First off, do your research on your local area Real Estate Comapnies that you think you might want to work for. Ask local professionals in your area who they reccomend and see about geting a general consensus. Prepare a resume and call the offices of the company's your interested in and speak with the Office manager. Explain the purpose of your call and request to see if any Senior Brokers are looking for "Juniors" or are willing to mentor.

I believe a good mentor is one that you can have effective, personal contact with his Intern at appointed times. If you were writing a graduate thesis, one of the first things that would happen would be the selection of a good mentor. We who have been in the field for a long period of time get no greater satisfaction that seeing someone we have mentored in our career go on to become more important than we are. The goal of all good mentors should be, "give someone everything you can give them, so that success rests on the person's ability to use good guidance, personal talent and hard work". As a mentor I can give an individual one-quarter of this requirement. The remaining three-quarters must come from within the person's heart, soul and positive brain parts.
If you were in Southern California I would be happy to offer you the same invitation I make to University Career Placement Deans, in discussing Interns for mentorship in commercial real estate. That invitation is for a candidate to send an email convincing me as to "Why you would make a good Intern".
